Event History

Located in Joutsa, a rural town in the region of Keski-Suomi (Central Finland), TUO TUO’s historic schoolhouse – built in the late 1920s – served as the Pynnölä village school until 2005. Joutsa is located in the Finnish lake district (Järvi-Suomi), about two and a half hours north of Helsinki.

What Makes this event different?

TUO TUO aims to function as an incubator for expression and new ideas, a place where solitary breeds solidarity. We support radical thinking across disciplines by providing space, proximity to nature, and a platform to exchange ideas that are free and open to all. TUO TUO prioritizes projects and proposals in the fields of Ecological art and research, Ecopsychology, Permaculture, and interactive public works. We believe art functions as a mirror of the wider society; its reverberations are felt beyond the creative community.

Things that we value, but are being progressively lost – from soil to silence, from biodiversity to a sense of purpose, from affinity to (un)connectedness – have all served as inspiration for TUO TUO’s Kulttuuri Tila [space for cultural cultivation] & Residency.
